Mulberry launches swimwear for Resort 2011
British label Mulberry has long been known for its sturdy leather bags and accessories, but for Resort 2011, it's going decidedly lighter and skimpier, with a line of bikinis and raffia totes.
The first ever Mulberry resort collection includes a few bikinis that come in either bandeau or triangle top styles and in a punchy watermelon hue or "trippy tiger" print. The "Edie" bag -- a hybrid of the "Alexa" bag and the classic "Bayswater" bag -- is also a part of the line and comes in natural shades such as beige and oak.
The look is definitely cool-girl-takes-a-holiday, and Mulberry's biggest cool-girl fans, such as Kate Bosworth and Alexa Chung (for whom the "Alexa" bag was named), already have their hands on these bikinis. And no doubt they look totally adorable in them.
